Allison Springer: From Pony Club to Changing the Eventing World

Bribery can get you far, but for young Allison Springer, it led to a lifetime of horse-crazy pursuits at the highest level of the eventing sport.

I was very fortunate that my parents supported my passion and my father, as a carpenter, built my barn and outdoor arena.
